These two mice are huddled together against the cold Autumn wind. This painting is a commission and shows how love gets us through hard times. The mice are looking toward the winds of change and their tails are entwined.
Autumn is a great time for painting the garden with all the seed pods and twisted leaves. I love berries too. Part of the commission was to paint milkweed and black eyes susans but I have never seen milkweed before so I enjoyed researching it. What complicated seed pod structure it has! I took me ages to figure out what was going on in the photographs.
